Sacred in the Ordinary: Details of Rain and Sun

I am tempted to search for the extraordinary. I catch myself longing for the incredible. I fight the urge to notice the spectacular. In doing so, I risk missing the most extraordinary, incredible and spectacular of all... the sacred in the ordinary.

My Moment...

We had sporadic rain to sun. I took time to be out after the rain. I noticed the droplets of water on the leaves. When I peered closer I noticed the droplets reflecting the sun. Peering even closer revealed the reflection of the trees in the droplets themselves.

So often I miss the tiniest details of life. I am in such a hurry I fail to stop and peer a bit closer. How often in my busyness I must miss the grand design and revealing of a Father who created such intricate beauty.

Not this time. I stopped for a moment and peered... and what I saw was truly the sacred in the ordinary.

What moment did you notice this week?
